    WOW, I love that room that looks like it was plucked out of middle east. That’s great no one ripped that out when it became unpopular.

      It’s definitely eye-catching, and I mean that in a good way. Interesting that it’s being used as an office. I’d be tempted to remove all furniture, deploy lots of overstuffed floor pillows and turn it into an opium den. If I were that sort of person, which of course I am not.

    Interesting Moorish looking fret panel…almost seems as if from a different house, entirely. Can’t stop looking at it.

    Yeah, me too. Love that room. Looks so warm and cozy. Wonder if the house originally had that gorgeous wallpaper in the other rooms?

    Wish they had pics of the 3rd floor after mentioning that it was a ballroom.

    This lovely house was designed by local architect James F. Bruff, and built for John M. Leach (1843-1914) and his much younger 2nd wife Emma Dean. Leach was a prominent Kokomo businessman, the owner of a brickyard and an ice company.

    While we’re in Kokomo, have a look at the museum at the 1891 Seiberling Mansion:

      Oh, WOW! That house museum is amazing! I usually find homes like this a little too fussy for my tastes but I like both this listing and the Seiberling Mansion. The attention to detail, quality materials, and the outstanding craftsmanship is hard to match.

      Wow, that’s a stunner. Definitely has a bit of a Winchester vibe to it!

    I’m curious as I’ve seen this frequently. Why is it that large fine homes like this are almost always the “castle” of the neighborhood without any peers nearby? Also, did anyone see the Italianate(?) at the other end of the block on Webster? It could use some attention and TLC.

    This place has some great curb appeal with the brick, the huge round tower and the round porch that wraps around it! I love the Turkish elements MGJ mentioned.

    Beautiful home! Somebody’s singing my song with all of these Queen Anne/Victorian homes. That humongous fireplace is amazing. The little office nook, while just amazing, didn’t really seem to fit with the rest of the house. It’s quirky. 🙂 So much beautiful woodwork – unpainted!
